Hounsou remains puzzled as to why the gunman took exception to him while he was filming new action film Blood Diamond in Mozambique, but he’s sure he’d be wounded or dead if it wasn’t for the heroics of DiCaprio.

“He stood in the way of somebody who was trying to shoot me. We went to eat somewhere and apparently somebody was threatening to kill me there.

Leo said, ‘Well, you’re gonna have to go through me,'” Hounsou was quoted by Contactmusic, as saying.

That was enough to make the gunman think twice and he fled the scene, leading a grateful Hounsou pouring praise on his pal.

However DiCaprio has refused to even discuss the matter during promotional interviews for the new film.

He only talks about his great friendship with Hounsou.

“We became like brothers on this movie… We were together for six months,” he said.
